Walking Wednesday
Change Your Way. Walk UA!
Why walk?
• Physical activity
• Teach safe walking skills to children
• Awareness of how walkable our community is and where improvements can be made
• Concern for the environment
• Reducing traffic congestion, pollution and speed near our homes and schools
• Sharing time with community parents and children

How do I participate in Walking Wednesdays?

You can meet at one of the three designated locations at the specified time, or join a group en route, or walk to school with your family. Or hop on your bike or scooter!

Bus rider? No problem! Have a parent take you to one of the three route starting points.

Attend SACC in the morning? Walk laps in the cafeteria from 7:50-8:05 to earn your Passport punch.

Passports and chains are handed out in classrooms. Attach your walking passport to your backpack. Receive a punch on your passport for each Wednesday you walk to school.  Turn your passport in on October 25th to be entered in the raffle for fun prizes!

Our parent captains will escort you and your classmates safely to Windermere.
